Images of Nature 

On the Siddha Yoga path, we acknowledge the presence of the Divine in all of creation—and this divinity is revealed in myriad forms in the natural world. The beauty and wonder we find in nature can inspire us, as seekers, to recognize the beauty within us and everywhere around us.

The Nature Gallery contains photographs taken in the wondrous environs of Shree Muktananda Ashram, where Gurumayi currently resides. The Ashram is located in upstate New York, surrounded by expansive forests and rolling hills, brimming with wildlife. Take your time as you view the gallery. Allow the images to transport you to the serene stillness of the Guru’s abode, and let nature’s splendor connect you to the splendor of your own great heart.

These beautiful photos of Shree Muktananda Ashram remind me of the deep quietude and silence I have experienced all around me when the snow gracefully blankets the earth. While viewing these photos, I experience that same deep silence within. Serenity and contentment arise, and the awareness of Gurumayi's grace. Tears of gratitude spring to my eyes!

Thank you, Gurumayi, for the unlimited ways in which I experience your constant grace in my life.

In viewing the photographs of the snow-laden grounds of Shree Muktananda Ashram, I could easily imagine the profound stillness of the scenes in which the photographer stood to take those photos. Originally a city girl, I always associate new-fallen snow anywhere with profound silence. The silence that I can sense from these snowy images reminds me of the silence in the Temple, or in a venerable church or other sacred space.

The December photos so eloquently portray the divine silence of winter. They help me enter into the stillness of my heart.
